Generating Tags

In this section, you'll learn about:

Creating a New Tag

To create a new tag:

  1. On the Data Collection page, click Create Tag .

    The Create Tag slider page opens.

  2. Enter the Tag Name and Tag ID.

    For the Tag Name, only spaces, alphanumeric, and underscore characters are accepted. The Tag Name can be changed after the tag is created.

    A Tag ID is automatically generated by converting the Tag Name to lower-case and replacing any spaces with underscores. Alternatively, you can enter your own Tag ID. You cannot modify the Tag ID after you create the tag. The Tag ID must be a unique value. If the Tag ID already exists, an error message is displayed, and you must change the value to make it unique.

    Tip: If an existing tag is deleted, the Tag ID of the deleted tag can be reused for another tag. You can create multiple tags with the same name.

  3. Select the required modules for the tag.

  4. Click Create in the slider to save the tag details and create the tag.

    If you click Cancel, your changes are lost.

A confirmation message displays to confirm that the tag has been created, and the page displays the details of the newly created tag such as the tag settings and the modules available in each context. The Production and Test contexts are created by default.

Note: Context refers to an instance of the tag that can be used in an environment. The term Context is also called Configuration or Container.

The instance of the tag with the Production context is recommended to be deployed with your web application or website hosted on your production servers. The instance of the tag with the Test context is recommended for test environments.

Note: Although you can click on and open modules in the Production container, you cannot edit them. The panel that opens when you click on a Production module is read-only. Users must make changes in another container first then publish.
